Additional Notes

This PDF sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Loved it!

Clear instructions, no mods needed - a great wardrobe staple!

A quick make for a pair of shorts! The sizing is perfect, instructions clear, and the pocket construction is really great. One of my go-to patterns for shorts!

The Emerson Pant/Short is a pleasure to sew! The instructions are very detailed and there are some great touches that make for a professional looking finished garment.

This is the first pair of pants I've even sewn and they were really easy. I had never sewn with elastic too but the instructions were very clear. This is a great first pants project for advanced beginner sewers! I love these pants and will probably make several pairs.

Great pattern! I shorten the length of the shorts by 1 5/8 inches but made no other alterations! Sewed a size 6.

I love True Bias patterns, they are very cleanly designed and easy to use :)

Don't be fooled - This simple crop pant has a lot of potential (even, if like me, you're not digging the cropped pants trend!)

Great pattern, I've made 3 pairs and love them all!

This was the easiest pattern to put together of all the one's I've downloaded.
